Counseling at Calvert Hall College

Recognizing that each student is unique, with differing physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics and needs, the School Counseling Office strives to create an environment of respect and motivation that will enable each young man to develop a positive self-image and to reach his goals.
 
For high school students, this is a period of rapid personal change and development, often accompanied by stress and uncertainty. The Counseling Department is designed to help students successfully meet these challenges through personal, academic and college counseling.

Individual Counseling

Counselors meet with students individually to discuss academic progress, extracurricular activities, social interests, family life and to provide ongoing support to students. They provide guidance on course selection, organization, time management skills and goal setting. They also cover topics that include stress, anxiety, depression, and loss. Individual appointments can be scheduled by the student or counselor. Students are encouraged to meet with their counselor to discuss any concerns or questions they may have and they are welcome to drop by “just to talk." Parents are also invited to contact their son’s counselor with any questions or concerns they may have.


Personal and Social Development

Students are assigned to counselors by their last names, but they don’t need to wait for a scheduled appointment to meet with them. Our counselors are available to help them at anytime, to discuss concerns and help them develop positive attitude towards themselves, their families, and their communities.

Counselors can also assist with:
  • Identifying strengths and developing skills where necessary
  • Understanding and appreciating their unique qualities, to help them grow personally and socially
  • Providing educational and support services to parents
  • Providing consultation services to teachers
  • Facilitating referrals to community support services when necessary

The Counseling Office also administers the school's standardized testing program including the PSAT, the PLAN, and AP exams.
